Oprah Winfrey feels has a lot to say about what it was like to be part of the royal wedding in a new interview.
Winfrey graces the August 2018 cover of British Vogue, looking regal as always in a custom Stella McCartney taffeta gown.
The accompanying interview finds the world-conquering businesswoman getting real on various issues close to her heart including race, feminism, and the rumored presidential run in 2020.
There were rumors that Winfrey has set her sights on the White House after her rousing Time's Up speech at the Golden Globes. However, for anybody holding out hope for Winfrey 2020, the media icon has some bad news.
"In that political structure -- all the non-truths, the bulls**t, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on -- I feel like I could not exist. I would not be able to do it. It's not a clean business. It would kill me," admitted Winfrey.
She also waxed lyrical about the burgeoning Time's Up and #MeToo movements, explaining that, in her view, things aren't getting worse but better because people around the world are suddenly waking up to issues that have been prevalent for a very long time.
"I see it differently," she asserts. "I see, 'Isn't this remarkable that we're waking up?' For years, women have endured craziness," she explained.
Feeling The Love
Winfrey also divulged what it felt like to be a guest at the biggest event of the year, Prince Harry's nuptials to Meghan Markle, at St. George's Chapel in Windsor back in May.
Although millions of people watched the event from the comfort of their homes, Winfrey was there to experience it in person. The experience left her feeling positive and reaffirmed her faith in love.
"It left me feeling that anything is possible through the power of love. Reverend Curry was right!" she joked.
Curry delivered a rousing speech entitled The Power of Love right before the happy couple made their vows. He honored Markle's American upbringing and quoted Martin Luther King Jr. in relation to the redemptive power of love.
Winfrey also admitted that, just a couple of days before the royal wedding, she realized her planned outfit would photograph white rather than cream. As a result, designer McCartney had to remake it in pink.
The two-time Emmy winner was notably one of the best dressed of the day according to pundits.
Winfrey spent time with Doria Ragland, Markle's mother, in the days leading up to the wedding, inviting her over to the host's palatial California estate for yoga and a kumquat-based supper.
The Duchess of Sussex's longtime friend and makeup artist, Daniel Martin, advised previously that Markle is heavily influenced by her mother, particularly when it comes to her style and grace when meeting new people.
